I am also in the HR area. Where are you going to school? I just graduated in May from TCC. If you are going there, I can probably give you some good pointers for your second year. Either way, I woud say that you will be fine as long as you study, get help when you need it, and study hard. Use this site for questions whan you have them.

Good luck!

I'm in the same boat. 2nd year, starting in psych then moving to med/surg in October. I'm really looking forward to the psych rotation, but have no desire what-so-ever to do med/surg again. Its looming like this big, scary, black cloud on the horizen. :chair: I dont want to do it!
